Appendix A: Country Fire Authority Q4 Progress Update

In Q4, CFA has reported on quarterly and annual indicator progress against the CFA Outcomes Framework 2022-23. For indicators that are reported annually, CFA’s Year Three Outcomes Framework uses an annual baseline which calculates the average result for results over a yearly specified time-period (1, 2, 3 or 5 years). CFA’s Year Three Outcomes Framework considers baseline data (where available) which is a calculation of the average result (1, 2, 3 or 5 years) over the equivalent period. Where baselines are reported in lieu of targets, CFA’s aim is to either ‘increase’, ‘decrease’ or ‘maintain’ (as appropriate) performance with consideration to baseline data.

CFA categorises Year Three Outcomes Framework indicators into four domains:

  1. Strong relationships to keep communities safe
  2. A responsive and innovative volunteer service
  3. High performing volunteer and paid workforce
  4. A continuous improvement culture.
